Former NBC anchor says she was sexually harassed by Tom Brokaw

Former NBC anchor says she was sexually harassed by Tom Brokaw”

Two friends of Vester corroborated to Variety that she told them about the encounters at the time, and she shared her journal entries from the time period with the news outlet.

Two women are accusing veteran newsman Tom Brokaw of workplace sexual harassment two decades ago when he was the anchor of NBC Nightly News, according to multiple media reports.

Brokaw helped anchor the network's coverage as recently as April 21, during Barbara Bush's funeral, and was also part of NBC News' coverage team for the State of the Union address this year.

NBC did not immediately return BuzzFeed News' request for comment, but in a statement to Variety issued through a spokesperson for the network, Brokaw, 78, disputed Vester's allegations as an inaccurate version of events.

"Nobody acted like anything wrong was happening, but I was humiliated", she said in an interview with Variety.

On other 2 occasions, she alleges the Brokaw talked his way over to her apartment, in 1994 and 1995, respectively.

Vester isn't the only woman who is alleging to sexual harassment from Brokaw. "The meetings were brief, cordial and appropriate, and despite Linda's allegations, I made no romantic overtures towards her, at that time or any other". She also alleges Brokaw grabbed her from behind in a conference room and tickled her waist in front of colleagues, humiliating her.

"I was shocked to feel the amount of force and his full strength on me", Vester said.

Vester said when she was 28, Brokaw tried to force her to kiss him twice, groped her and came to her hotel room without an invitation.

Brokaw confirmed that he met with Vester, but strongly denied the allegations made in the report.

Another woman, who spoke to the Post on the condition of anonymity, said Brokaw approached her in a hallway when she was a 24-year-old production assistant and put her hands on his chest. "She does so at her own expense and peril".
